Will his daughter read the book? "Maybe only the bad parts," he said with a laugh. "You know, anything that will turn her against me. I really have no idea how my daughter is raised. But there is an authority, and that authority's job is to protect the child. And none of this is now done in the best interest of the child. What you have to do now [is] to get a judge to force a mother to go into therapy to get her to stop alienating a child against her other parent -- they just don't want to do that. Men's behavior is examined to a fare-thee-well in the California system, and women just skate."
There are three places in the book where he writes about breaking down, the last time being after the infamous phone message he left for his daughter last year.
"Like I have said many times," he said, "if what you did on your worst day was recorded by someone privately. . . . " he trailed off for a moment.
"Listen," he said, standing up and putting his hands on the armrests of his chair, pushing his weight into the canvas. "The other side is angrier than I will ever be, that's for sure. And when what you do on your worst day is broadcast by these people. . . . Someone should have gone to a judge and said, 'I would prefer that he not leave messages like that.' It could have been done. The world now is so fueled by mockery, and you just get really sad when it's your turn to be taken for a spin."
